37th Annual Morristown CraftMarket

37th Annual Morristown CraftMarket
The 37th Annual Morristown CraftMarket, one of the top juried, longest running and most successful fine art and craft shows in the nation, will be held Friday, October 18 through Sunday, October 20 at the National Guard Armory in Morristown, NJ.  The show hours are Friday, October 18, 5pm to 9pm; Saturday, October 19, 10am to 6pm; and Sunday, October 20, 10am to 5pm.

In a Special Citation, Morris Arts recognized the Morristown CraftMarket as a "nationally acclaimed fine art and craft show and as "a major cultural event attracting thousands of visitors each year in addition to gifted artists from over 25 states throughout the country."

Showcased in the Morristown CraftMarket are extraordinary, one-of-a-kind and iimited edition fine arts and crafts in all contemporary media.

160 artists will display and sell their original and magnificent creations in jewelry, leather, ceramics, metal, glass, wood, wearable fiber and more.

"The artists compete in a rigorous, nationwide selection process and the panel of judges, who are peer artists, choose the best in each fine art and craft category," said Geoffrey Price, Volunteer Show Director.

The Morristown CraftMarket is sponsored and run by the not-for-profit Kiwanis Club of Randolph Township, NJ.  All proceeds from the show benefit local charities.

"The Morristown CraftMarket is one of only a handful of fine art and craft shows of its size and quality in the country run to benefit charities in the community," said Price.

Fall Plant Sale

Also included in the show will be a Fall Plant Sale of elegant and unusual plants from expert horticulturist Ken Selody of rare-plant nursery Atlock Farm in Somerset, NJ.

Selody will bring his one-of-a-kind living sculptures, including precisely trimmed topiaries, along with cacti and other succulents, tropicals, perennials and more.

"For several years Ken Selody appeared as a guest on Martha Stewart's TV show, and also was a contributing editor to her magazine," said Price.  "He's also been a frequent presenter at the Philadelphia Flower Show."

Specialty food items also will be featured in the annex to the main show floor.

Clothing Drive for Big Brothers Big Sisters

Big Brothers Big Sisters will be collecting gently used clothing items throughout the show.  Receipts will be issued for tax-deductible donations of clothing items accepted at the collection truck located near the parking lot, which are tax-deductible to the extent allowed by law.
